    09 RXT coolant leak at temp probe

    Yesterday, while cleaning the engine bay I noticed some crusty residue around what I believe is the temp probe. The leak does not appear to be bad at all as the coolant bottle was near max. Is there a gasket here that goes bad from time to time or do I need to just tighten it up? I thought I would ask here first.

    probably remove it, clean threads up on both, and use pipe tape or similar and reinstall

    Its uses an aluminum washer to seal. I would not use thread tape or any other method to seal it.

    Ok guys thanks. You have answered my question. I will tighten it without taking it apart first and monitor it. If the leak continues, I will get a replacement washer and re-work the connection.

    I need to replace this temp probe. The aluminum washer is all corroded. Can anyone tell me the part number? I looked in the parts store under the cooling and electrical diagrams and do not see it listed.

    09 RXT coolant leak at temp probe



    Coolant and water box temp sensors are identical and any auto parts store has these for about $10.

    Different part numbers but look the same. Are the tolerances different? I've used WB sensors for water temps without issues.

    09 RXT coolant leak at temp probe

    Obviously BRP part number is going to be different than Bosch. AutoZone Autoparts has them for $9.99

    Just google the Bosch part number
